|BURNT WORK.—EIGHTH PAPER.
by Harriet Keith Fobes
Adapted from THE DELINEATOR Magazine, October 1895 issue, pp. 477–479.
Butterick Publishing Co., London & New York.
This is the eighth in a series of eleven monthly articles on burnt work by American artist Harriet Keith Fobes for The Delineator magazine.
In this eighth article, Fobes dedicates three pages to figure and portrait work, and describes in thoughtful detail ways in which to use portraits, how to copy, transfer and transpose designs in preparation for a burnt work portrait, drawing from life, light sources, and backgrounds of all types. She also discusses portraiture as decorative art. As usual, her emphasis is generally on burnt work in leather with more limited discussion of wood.
